Pomelo Hat

Famous Limecat

I love pomelo. A week ago, I was pleasantly surprised to see pomelo in Giovanni's, the neighborhood produce store. Even though it was $3.99 each, I grabbed one. I don't know why I haven't seen any pomelo at the farmers' markets. I had this big pomelo sitting in my fruit basket for a few days. When my neighbor Katie came over, she asked me what it was. I told her, "It's a pomelo!" She had never seen anything like it, so I cut it open and shared some with her. I was very happy that this young girl liked the fruit. I then proceeded to tell her about all the cat pictures on the internet wearing pomelo hats.  Since I didn't tear apart the pomelo peel this time, it served as a pretty good hat.

After we enjoyed the healthy treat, I took my pomelo hat and went out to the yard to let Kelsey and Cracus try it on. It's a bit small for Kelsey. It's about the right size for Cracus, but he just wouldn't hold still. I barely managed to put it on him for a second.  I went over to Giovanni's and got another pomelo after work today. I am going to enjoy this incredible fruit while it's in season. Pomelo has many health benefits including anti-aging and fighting cancer not to mention it tastes great. I love grapefruit, too, but pomelo tastes even better!
